Originally Jon Fitch was scheduled to fight Jake Ellenberger at UFC 126, but with Penn’s victory at UFC 123 last November, it got Dana White planning the fight with these two great wrestlers for UFC 127. Their fight will be at the Acer Arena in Sidney, Australia and broadcast by Pay-Per-View, the tickets are sold-out, ever since December.

Fitch’s last fight was at UFC 117 against Brazilian Thiago Alves, where he won by unanimous decision, while Penn’s was at UFC 123. He defeated Matt Hughes by unanimous decision. Penn, at 169 pounds, 5’9″ and his 70 inch Reach proved to be deadly, but Fitch is fearless at 170 pounds, 6’1″ and a reach at 74 inches might give a lot of trouble to the Hawaiian wrestler.

The other fight that is expected by fans comes with Michael Bisping vs. Jorge Rivera, Jorge needed a contender like Bisping to have a better profile at the UFC, so in order to get him into a fight with him he started to play mind games with him, apparently they worked.

“I started revving him up. Everyone knows Mike’s a good guy but he’s hot-tempered and can’t control himself if someone’s talking bull about him. So I talked it up and, of course, he told Joe he didn’t want to fight me but he would just have to shut me up. So my plan worked.”

Carlos Condit was scheduled to fight Chris Lytle but a knee injury while training forced him out of the fight, Brian Eberson will replace him. Here is the UFC 127 Full Fight Card:
